No actual RC out on channel 7/8 unless safety switch pressed even though it's shown to change.

Started Feb 21, 2016 0 Replies

Hi folks,I've just noticed that the logs / tuning graph shows RC 6/7/8 having output even though there is no actual output. Once I press the safety switch then the outputs really do spring to life.I…Continue

Crash - why did it flip?

Started May 20, 2015 0 Replies

FLIR Tau2 640 + GoPro and 3D printed case

Posted on March 5, 2015 at 4:00pm 19 Comments

I've been doing a bunch of filming with my Tau2 (more to come on that) and recently I have needed to film with both the Tau2 and a GoPro with the aim of blending the video.
